A new definition of pluck


A woman in Prescott, Ariz., deserves a prize for pluck: She ran a mile with a fox firmly fastened to her arm. The fox had run out and bitten the jogger in the foot, reports the Associated Press, and when the woman grabbed it by the neck, it squirmed and bit her arm. Wanting the animal tested for rabies, she ran back to her car with it “locked on her arm,” then drove herself and the fox to a nearby hospital, where the animal tested positive for rabies. Both the jogger and an animal control officer — who was also bitten by the fox — received rabies vaccinations.
